a substantive difference? >> look, i think any kind of -- any time you're criticizing the obama administration on their economic record, you've really got to take into account not just what they've done, but what they've tried to do. have they done enough to lower the unemployment rate to offset inequality? i don't think so. but have they tried to do the kinds of policies that would move in that direction? very much so. i'm thinking of the american jobs act. the minimum wage increase the president proposed back in the last state of the union. the fact they've been blocked along the way so many times by congress is really important if you're doing that kind of evaluation. >> and you have to make that point to so many other different topics. that's out there. look, we can't talk about all this without mentioning friday's jobs report. we saw unemployment fall to 7.0% for the first time since '08. best numbers in five years. what's your analysis of the report? >> well, it was a good report. sometimes we've talked about these declines in unemployment as being due to the fact that people left the la
, the north koreans called the obama administration yesterday, said they're releasing him. they did not explain why. and they can only -- really can never know with north korea, fred. very unpredictable. no one really wants to get in the head of the north koreans, but obviously, everybody very happy that mr. newman is on his way home. >> so lots of joy that newman has been released. however, there's another american being held, and the u.s. is calling for the release of kenneth bae. what will it take in order for his demise to end up very similar to newman, and return home? >> reporter: again, really don't know, now that mr. newman is home, u.s. officials are telling me that all attention now is on kenneth bae. he's been in north korea for over a year, a missionary, and they say he was trying to subvert the government. his family issued a statement about the release of mr. newman. let me read a little bit of it for you. we're pleased to hear that mr. newman was released from the dprk, the name for north korea. we believe that our kenneth should come home soon. we have faith in o our
at the white house. the obama administration is giving s
at the center of a deportation case for years. initially, the administration said president obama never met with the uncle seen here during an unrelated court appearance. but now it turns out he briefly lived with the uncle many years ago. brian todd has been looking into the story for us. explain this contradiction. what's going on. >> the contradiction is explained by the white house by saying there almost was no contradiction. when they said before there was no record of president obama meeting his uncle, that there really was no written record, not even in the president's book of him meeting his uncle, but not only did he meet him, but he stayed with him for a brief period of time in the '80s when the president's apartment was being readied for him in cambridge, massachusetts. the problem was in 2012, the white house said that the boston globe cited the white house as saying they had never met. now, this is what jay carney said yesterday about all this. >> when omar obama said the other day, and there were reports he had said the other day that president obama back when he was a law sch
down. >> there you go. i can see how that would relate. let's get to obama care and the new numbers released. 29,000 people enrolled through the website in the last few days. that's more than the entire month of october and what some administration officials are saying an enrollment surge. should they be celebrating just yet? >> no. there are so many issues remaining with obama care, they just got past the first one which apparently is the mess up with the website. but to compare it to october is not really much of a comparison. you know, it was nil in october. >> and so what are some of the other challenges that they're going to have to confront? >> they have to go with the doctors who are not getting paid, not being included in networks. you have to solve the problems with irs and coordinatation with the various agencies. how are people going to be paid? there's all kinds of problems that have to be worked out. >> a little too early to celebrate. now when it comes to obama care, republicans clearly have the political advantage for a while. but now that white house seems to be gett
health care reform law. the obama team spent weeks playing defense over the disastrous debut of the website. next hour he kicks off a new campaign to highlight the benefits of the affordable care act. the administration plans daily events through december 23rd but convincing young people to sign up for obama care may be a tough sell. according to a brand-new gallup poll, americans aged 18 to 29 are the least familiar with the health care law. this is the main group, by the way, an the administration needs toe attract to make the whole system work. call it crisis management on a global scale. vice president biden is on a mission to ease tensions between china and japan. he and the new u.s. ambassador to japan, caroline kennedy sat down with japan's deputy prime minister taro aso today. hot on the agenda, how to handle the defense zone chooen has over the sea. he was deeply concerned over the actions. >> the u.s. has an interest in lowering the tensions in this region as i believe all the countries in northeast asia share that same interest with us. >> this under
and headaches, president obama is renewing the push for his signature health care law. and this white house knows, they have no time to waste. to promote the law and boost enrollment, the administration will hold an event every single day from now until december 23rd, the deadline to enroll and get insurance for the new year. and it all started this afternoon, with the president himself, who said we are not going back. >> and that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have, is let's go back to the status quo, because they sure haven't presented an alternative. you've got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> no, we're not going to repeal the law. and, in fact, the real ballots may have just begun. >> if i've got to fight another three years to make sure this law works, that's what i'll do. what's important for everybody to remember is, not only that the law has already helped millions of people, but that there are millions more who stand to be helped. and we've got to make sure they know tha
to come in are ron mcclain, someone not the inside of president obama's ener circle, someone who had worked at the white house for joe biden in the early part of the administration. already people are talking about the possibility that he will come back for the second half of the second term. i think jim vander high is right. a massive shakeup, the president is not going to do that. if he did, it would be a massive merge you are from all precedents. >> john, some presidents, some political candidates have the ability to do this. >> now it's ari. >> this is really bad timing. >> put him on speaker. let's see what he says. get the second delay ready. >> do you realize it's 4:00 a.m. in l.a.? >> it's 4:00 a.m. in laechlt. your brother is here, by the way, he says you just don't call. you don't write. okay. your brother loves you. all right, we're hanging up now. talk to you soon. mika will call you. boy. >> he was very ensulled that you said that he doesn't call you and you know what, he should be because he calls you all the time. >> no. no. >> he calls you up. he says, i will renegoti
, and about a third, by the way, of what the administration says will be reported for november. and the president very interestingly at one point, brooke, talked about the term obama care. people in washington have been saying the president hasn't been using the word obama care as much lately. what's the deal with that? the president used it during this address to younger folk s here at the white house. here's what the president had to say. >> i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and i do. i care about you. i care about families. i care about americans. but no matter how much i care, the truth is that for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. it's going to be you. they are going to trust you. >> so a little bit of the president picking himself up, dusting himself off from that disast rr rollout of no briefing here at the white house today, but on a conference call with reporters, officials with the administration, they were talking about how they also believe that enro
, the mainstream media has been pretty tough on jay carney and this administration because, look, you can't avoid it. the fact is that the rollout of obama care has been a mess. the website was a disaster when it first came out. the promise, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan was clearly broken. and, you know, it's just too impossible to ignore. so, as i say, i think that horse is already out of the barn. >> so how are congressional democrats feeling this morning? are they still feeling kind of panicky as they have been the last couple of months about obama care? do they think things are getting better? >> well, clearly they are getting better. better is a relative word. the website is working a lot better in december than it was in october or november. i can't imagine that they're filled with great confidence about it, tuck er. on the other hand, all of these people in the senate were passed by a single vote. each one of those democrats up for re-election last year was a key, a single vote that decided whether or not obama care became a law or went down. they're kind of ono bomb ma ca
